You will probably just need to replace the pool cleaners backup valve kit. Call the manufacturer or a local company who sells parts for the cleaners and find out if they have it. It will be part number G52.

Sport 3900 is doing wheelies will not stay level to clean


1. Check the wheel RPM. If not in the 30-36 RPM range, refer to the manual for adjusting the wheel RPM.

2. Adjust the thrust jet downward.

3. Verify the backup valve is cycling. Lift the valve out of the water and watch the jet. It should come on and go off.

4. Check for water inside the head float.

5. Empty the filter bag.

You can download the 3900 Manual from the Polaris site

Why does the valve at wall on polaris 3900 sport keep popping up


The mechanism of the polaris is driven by water pressure. If too much pressure gets to the drive mechanism, it will break. This valve allows extra water pressure to escape before it gets to the machine and rips the drive mechanism apart.

My Polaris 3900 that I bought today is not moving fast enough. There is no blue restrictor cap in the wall.


Check your filter, pump, and debris baskets for excessive waste that could decrease the pool cleaners water flow. Check the hoses, hose connections, and swivels for leaks that could cause loss of water pressure. Check your wheel RPM. If it is below 30, you will need to incease the water pressure. If you have an adjustable return valve, make sure it is open all the way. Also, make sure that your pump is working properly.

My polaris 3900 moves across the pool with the front wheel of the bottom, the wheel on the 1 wheel side and the back wheel are on the bottom.


Check your wheel RPM. If the pool cleaners RPM is over 32, reduce the water flow so that the cleaner makes proper contact with the pool's surface. Verify the back-up valve is cycling. Lift the valve out of
the water and watch the jet. It should come on and go off. You might also need to adjust your thrust jet if it is causing the cleaner to lean too far to one side.

Just installed my p 3900 about a month ago and it is not working (moving). the wheels are not moving at all. Filters have been changed, skimmers cleared and water flowing freely and still my 3900 is just...


I would check to make sure that the pool cleaners RPM is at at least 30. If it is lower than 30, you are not getting enough pressure to power the cleaner. If your RPM is between 30 and 36, and the cleaner has never moved since you got it, I think that something is probably installed incorrectly. Check all of your connections for leaks or cracks. If necessary, go over the entire assembly instructions and check it step by step. I bet you will find something slightly wrong or slightly off that is causing the lack of pressure.

Back-up valve is not working properly. Can I take


With these pool cleaners, if they are not backing up, there are several things that you could try. Lift the valve out of the water and watch the jet. It should be going on and off. If it is not, you will need to replace the back up valve. If it appears to be working properly, try adjusting your wheel RPM.

Wheels are not turning. water is spraying from back up valve continually so not enough pressure to put machine into action


If the pool cleaner is not running properly (too slowly or not at all), you will want to check the following things. Make sure that your wheel RPM is not less than 30. If it is, you will need to adjust the wheel RPM to make the cleaner have enough power to move properly. First check your filter screen and the debris baskets in your pump, filter, and skimmer. They could have a blockage that is causing the loss of power. Next, if you have an adjustable valve on the cleaner line, open it completely so water can flow freely to the cleaner. If that does not work, remove the blue restrictor disk from the UWF. Also, check the hoses, hose connections, and swivels for leaks that could cause loss of water pressure. If you think that it is simply your backup valve that is malfunctioning, you might need to replace it. The backup valve kit is part number G52.
